Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Housing and Special Duties, Mr. Akan Okon has revealed that the state government had made significant progress at the Ibom deep seaport, in the past three years as a result of the importance Governor Udom Emmanuel attaches to such infrastructure.

Okon debunked the claim that the government was not doing anything in Uyo on the state of the Ibom deep seaport project. He disclosed that the ground breaking hopefully would be performed by November this year. He also stated that all other processes that lead to the construction had been completed and all that is left is to sign the agreement with the preferred bidder.

He said, “And with the level that we have reached now, by the end of November this year, God willing, there should be a ground breaking. The most important thing was getting a preferred bidder. We have done that. The bidder’s conference was held in May this year in Uyo.”
